Blanc de Blanc Extra Dry Sparkling Wine

Blanc de Blanc Extra Dry Sparkling Wine Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: This methode champenoise sparkler is made from a Vidal Blanc cuveé pressed from whole-berry Vidal Blanc grapes. While often thought of as the driest of the blanc de blanc sparkling wines, the ‘extra-dry’ is actually slightly sweeter than the ‘brut.’ Our Extra Dry has a soft fruity character with a light dry yeast bouquet.

Varietal Definition
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
